    Abstract

    Cet article étudie la pensée économique et sociale de Friedrich Hayek, figure majeure du libéralisme contemporain. Notre but est de présenter les grandes lignes du libéralisme hayékien pour en éclairer la position sur : le rôle de la démocratie dans la détermination d'une bonne société. Par société, comme Hayek, nous entendons les institutions - règles de conduite/constitution - que les hommes, en tant qu'êtres sociaux, peuvent envisager dans leurs rapports réciproques. L'enjeu est de savoir quelle place Hayek accorde à la démocratie dans la définition de bonnes règles sociales ou encore : Hayek est-il favorable à la démocratie constitutionnelle ? Notre réponse est négative. Contrairement à James Buchanan et Viktor Vanberg, Hayek récuse la souveraineté des citoyens en matière constitutionnelle. Et ce, parce qu'il estime que ce domaine relève de l'expertise scientifique plutôt que du choix démocratique.
